Gatordawww by colonel-strawberry Gatordawww by colonel-strawberry
I've been trying so hard to keep off the computer to give my hand/wrist a break, but man, I go crazy if I cant draw! Spent the last hour or two relaxing and shading a flatcolored sketch I had laying around to get the need for arts out of my system.

Gatordog and Gatorgirl <3

And the flat version, just for kicks:

This is gorgeous! I'm always astounded by your shading, you should do up a shading tutorial sometime, or at least give some tips!

Actually, when I had wrist issues, I tried holding the brush straight up from the paper, Sumi style, and found that it drastically decreased the pained stress. You ever tried that?

They're so cute and molded together... 0u0 Loving Annabelle's little collapsed face. Plus, you know just where to put the foliage in to excite the scene without having it go crazy.

Yeah I tried, although my tablet placement doesnt lend itself well to a lot of different hand positions.

:D Oh! Yes! Which is really secretly just my laziness to drawing backgrounds C:

Hrm...requires too much pressure?
(One thing I like about watercolours is the easy ability to fuck with the colors. To just drip in clear water or introduce foreign objects for good textures.)

I have the same technique with drumming. In lieu of good solo rhythm, I developed a technique of leaving out or adding in single drumbeats to energize the field.
one drum at the right time makes even more of an impact than the entire kit off the beat.
(Seriously, it's down to the 5/8 point of a beat. Ridiculous.)

ugh. Those colors ugh. <3 I adore the choice of shading, nice little purple tinges really add to it imo. And Gatordog's little folds, and everything! So warm and fluffy and hnnng can you let me in the middle there please. : Dc

I know what you mean about your pictures not showing up. Mine wasn't showing up for a couple of weeks. They would get fav'ed and it wasn't reported that there was something wrong, so I know that it was just me.

Then, all of a sudden, it started working again. Not sure why.

Well, that have been changing there format a lot, lately. Just comes with the territory

I think the only reason I can see them now is because a friend logged on to DA and looked at my gallery. After that, its been working fine.
A bit complicated, but it might work. :/
